A MAN has continually exposed himself on Pope’s Quay and northside areas, according to reports.

The man, believed to be in his early 30s and around five-foot-nine, has been spotted in a laneway opposite the pedestrian bridge on Pope’s Quay and on the N20 near the Heineken Brewery masturbating in broad daylight.

A local radio station caller, named Katy, has reported the sighting on Sunday to the Gardaí. She said her friend had also seen the man two days before.

“It’s not like a one-off thing,” Katy told the 96FM Opinion Line with PJ Coogan.

“It’s a bit weird and scary because I could have been there by myself. Most of the time the people that are doing these things are mentally unwell.

“It’s not to say they will do something that is more extreme but the potential is there,” she added.

“It’s a frightening thing to think about because that’s the way I walk home every day. I walked that way by myself a lot of the time.

Katy has said she has now altered her walking route to an area where there is CCTV.

“I was a bit in shock at the time and was like ‘do I report this?’, ‘is this wrong?’ but when my friend, Abi, said she’d seen him, I thought, no, this is not right and we need to speak up.”
